DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Tens of thousands of people kicked off the holiday season at Downtown Dayton’s Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Friday.
The tree was donated by a couple from Harrison Township who planted it back in 1996. Now, 20 years later it’s in the center of the city for everyone to enjoy this holiday season.
“We really start to get into it over the course of the summer,” Deutsch said. “And our staff is involved we have a 2 people who work on it plus some interns and then as it gets closer and closer there’s a lot more people involved.”
The lights will be on 24/7 for the next several weeks. The tree stays up through New Year’s Day.
